 My today's thoughts

Today is Thanksgiving UNFORGETTABLE


Today is Thanksgiving


I walked my sister to her car to tell her goodbye
She is going to spend the day with her daughter

I wandered back into the house to the smell of fresh coffee
My daughter is in the kitchen getting ready for today

My son is asleep on the sofa
 his dog by his side


I choke back tears that have fallen so heavily the last few days


We told my silver haired honey goodbye yesterday at the cemetery
I went back later to tell him goodnight - the sky was a perfect blue

Wild geese in silver Vs were flying across the sky
almost like a salute to my love

Jet planes were flying high
leaving their vapor trails - they too seem to be saying goodbye

Multi colored leaves were falling with the soft blow of the wind
preparing for winter long sleep


My finger now caress the flag that covered his casket
I put his jacket to my face to be warmed by his smell

God has blessed me so richly
Not many know  the deep abiding love that we shared

I know that we will meet again
this life here on earth is only the beginning


Today is Thanksgiving and I say
Thank you, Heavenly Father for letting me share my
life with my silver haired honey
For the wonderful children we have
For my friends and family
For my Church family
AND most of all
Our Saviour Jesus Christ
 Who sees us through the valley of the shadow of death

**Thomas loved to sing
He wanted me to sing this with him
so I did - I do not claim to be a singer
I will always treasure his love for me and our family


Psalms 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest  my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.


*Thomas went to be with our Lord November 24, 2008
God keep you, my love, You are loved and missed,
